Melbourne, Australia (1 of many)

As mentioned in my post on Jan 1st, I’ve been away for the past 3 weeks, visiting my daughter Joanne, in Melbourne, Australia.  For the first 2 weeks, I stayed in a wonderful Airbnb, called BigOldFamilyHome in the Northcote area. My sincerest thanks go to Sandra and Andrew for being perfect hosts.  For my 3rd ‘week’, I took off to the Alpine National Park to do some walking, but more of that later…

In this first, introductory post, I thought I’d show you a few pictures, mainly of the Docklands area, which is being redeveloped.  Though I was advised that maybe upto 2/3rds of the apartments currently remain empty.

One of the many pluses of visiting or living in Melbourne is that tram travel in the very centre of the city is free.  The area is more or less bordered by the old style City Circle line trams – see pics 2 & 3.

  1. Hello Mike,

    Happy New Year!

    Just to say Duncan and I are booked into the Refuge restaurant tomorrow for Sunday lunch at 13:30 Is this the place you recommended in Evolene? I hope so, I couldn’t quite remember !

    If you and Judith are around maybe we could meet for a coffee mid afternoon? Failing that, we are coming up to Nax again next weekend. Maybe we could meet up then?

    Cheers

    Catherine
